WTNG 304 - Feminist Rhetorics


Prerequisites: Successful Completion of a 200-level WTNG course
Requirement Fulfillment: Minor, Core Concentration
Delivery: Lecture
Feminist. A polarizing word, people understand it in very different ways. In this course we will  analyze various definitions of feminism by exploring how scholars of feminist rhetorics have recovered the transgressive ways women use their writing, speaking, and silence to intervene in the world. We will focus on the methods and methodologies by which these scholars examine feminist rhetorics. As we investigate the ways feminists (of all genders) have used their writing, speaking, and silence to speak back to power and to challenge implicit rules about who gets to speak (or write) in a given situation, we will consider how these feminist rhetorical theories and practices might inform our own discursive interventions in the world.
